Now create your audio devices in no time using the new and improved SmartMP3 Board that has been redesigned by MikroElektronika after receiving a lot of suggestions from the users of the previous version. This advanced SmartMP3 Board features a more powerful and versatile VS1053 - Ogg Vorbis/MP3/AAC/WMA/FLAC/WAV/MIDI stereo audio codec that allows reproducing audio files in numerous formats. The board also employs two 3.5mm stereo audio connectors (MIC/LINE IN and Headphones), built-in speakers, microSD card, as well as 2x5 male header for enhanced connectivity on MikroElektronika Easy development boards.
The SmartMP3 Board uses the SPI interface for communication with the target board microcontroller. A flat cable, provided with the board, can be used to establish connectivity. Due to its more compact size, it can easily fit into smaller spaces. An on-board jumper enables user to set the power supply voltage to 3.3V or 5V depending on the development system in use.
IC/Module: VS1053 - Ogg Vorbis / MP3 / AAC / WMA / FLAC / MIDI Audio Codec Chip
The versatile VS1053 MP3 decoder chip is designed to let user decode all the most common audio formats (including the newer AAC files). In addition to this, this IC is also capable of recording in three different audio formats, from lossless 16-bit PCM to highly compressed, yet high-quality Ogg Vorbis files. It makes an easy-to-use, powerful tool for audio playback and recording applications.
Redesigned and Improved Version
The new version of the SmartMP3 Board features the advanced and powerful VS1053 stereo audio codec in place of the previous VS1011E audio codec. The on-board MMC/SD card slot is replaced with microSD card slot, easily available in all mobile phones. The improved version comes with convenient audio connectors in place of screw terminals to facilitate connection with speakers or headphones directly to the board. Also, previously, SmartMP3 Board was apable of reproducing sound only, but the new, redesigned version has integrated MIC input that enables recording sound from microphone.
